During the war, Acan Jenifer faced many hardships and was forced to be placed in an orphanage along with her eight siblings. Working for KK Uganda has given Jenifer a second chance at education and has allowed her to afford school for her younger siblings and children.  She has been working as a farmer and hopes to grow her farm with the money that she earns at Krochet Kids intl. This experience has enabled her to better support her family.

“My dream is to put my children and my brothers and sisters to school so as to give them a brighter future through education.”

“Love means appreciating someone the way they are without any strings attached.”

“My hope is that KK intl. and its promoters will not get tired of loving Uganda and that God should continue to make them help other women in the other parts of the country.”

Thank you so much for the hat that you spent time making! I have 'the Betty' hat in taupe. I wear it often in the fall and winter and I always get compliments on it! It keeps my head warm and helps my outfits look nice!

I hope that KKi brings you much joy and I hope that you can meet your goal of sending or helping your family go to school! I am sure that they appreciate all that you do!

Acan Jennifer :) Much, Much LOVE to you and your beautiful crocheted hat! I want you to know that as a believer in Christ you can boldly say in confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" - Hebrews 13:6 - This piece of scripture has/is helping me overcome some of my big trials in life (receiving custody of my son, getting a job, etc...)! God is GREAT, and may you continue to DREAM :) oooo and by the way you have a beautiful smile!!

In recently moving to the northwest and going through a harsh winter I have been looking for a hat to help me get through. I was excited when I got the hat you made me on my birthday. I know that not only will it keep me warm but it will help me smile during those cold days.

Thank you for the amazing hat,
